Random and family pictures-ish

First. Thank you SO much to everyone who responded to my last post. I couldn't believe the love and care from all you. I really do appreciate you guys showing me how much you support me. I decided i'm just going to keep going with what i'm doing and not let it affect me because this is what I LOVE to do and I know this is what i'm meant to do, so nothing will hold me back from it. I love you all to death, thank you!

Another thing, I MAY be going private, I have over 300 hits a DAY and the same people always comment, the important ones, so who are these other people?? Seriously over 28,000 people since March!? I kept it public for business sake, but i'm busy enough for now and people can follow my business blog if they want to keep up on that. This is more for family and friends and people who love me. Oh I mean my family.
So I dunno i've been contemplating it for a while, i'm 85% sure I might. We'll see.

Well i'm sitting here on my couch bored out of my tree, so i'm blogging. Which is weird because I could be working on orders, or doing the dishes, or laundry, or anything for that matter. There is always something to be done in this house. Anyways Dustin is working so we (Kyla and I) tried to watch conference this morning but it cut out and then wouldn't work, so I decided to watch the relief society broadcast I missed last week. Then Dustin and I can watch conference tonight together. It just "feels" like Sunday and I should do nothing, which i'm totally ok with.

I went to put conference on and told Kyla Church is on tv today, she said "No... I don't want to go to heaven yet." not too sure where she got that from but it was cute. So I had to explain. I've been teaching her a lot about the church, who Joseph Smith was and how he built the first temple and who Jesus Christ, Hevenly Father and President Monson are. She is so in love with the temple so I also told her how we all got sealed together forever and she loved that. She is so smart and I want her to be a smart girl going into sunbeams in January because I know she can be that girl.

So we attempted family pictures last night. Dustin is working 24 days in a row, because he picked up some overtime on thanksgiving weekend. Which I don't care about because it will be perfect for Christmas. So he catches the bus at 5:30am and walks in the door at 6:30pm so the only time was last night. Jill took them for us, I just wanted some simple pictures of us in the leaves and she has a good camera. Fall up here lasts about a week, and Jill leaves tomorrow for a week. So it was now or never. Anyways by the time we rushed out there it was a little too dark so she had to put it on night settings. So everything showed up blurry, there were a couple decent ones but nothing I loved. Besides it was FREEZING and all our kids were frozen to the bone. Jill even had to drag her kids out because there were no sitters. We were out there at most 20 minutes and my hands were numb! I think it was too forced and not meant to be. So we'll try again...in the snow. How cute will that be all dressed in "warm clothes." I actually am excited and think it'll be pretty, especially up here, there are so many trees and it's so beautiful in the winter. Maybe we'll be lucky and by the time we do them (Dustin's next day off, the 24th) there may not be snow. I'm crossing my fingers. Here i'll show you the best ones we got, most of them are of Dustin and I, that's all that matters anyways. I wasn't going to put any of them on but they are pretty cute, considering the darkness and blurryness.








This is normal.
I had to show you this one, check out Kyla...




So what else, i've just been working and being a mom. The kids are busy as always, getting too smart. Climbing EVERYTHING. My house is literally empty because they destroy and play with everything. I'm going to redo this place so I love it and they can't wreck it. I guess that's what they call baby proofing, although I never had to do any changes until now and they aren't babies anymore...
Well life is going to be pretty low key these next couple weeks. I'm sure i'll tell you all about it...

Mindy, you have a beautiful family. I just asked Jill to get some pics of our family when she gets back. I love the outdoor ones to...but I will make sure I do them in the day! haha! Oh, and I just bought some boots just like yours yesterday!! I'm going to check right now if they are the same ones...

Alison said...

Ok, they're different! Cute boots though! :)

You color looks really great. I love the warmer blonde underneath!! Too bad they were a little blurry, but you guys look really good.

Janas Bananas said...

I kinda like the bluriness of the pictures, gives it a "active, movie shot" look. At least you are trying, I am pretty sure our last family pictures was taken 3 years ago, I think we are due???

Cute pics! Make sure you add me if you go private!! I never blog really, so I'm gonna leave mine for now. Ha. Hey, I didn't get a chance to comment about your last post, sorry that you had to deal with that...the only upside is that she's in the states and it shouldn't affect your clientelle too much. It looks like you are doing great, love you all!

The Harker Family said...

Great pics Mindy! In the first pic you can see how cold you and Dustin were by how tightly you were holding each others hands. Ha, ha, ha! Your girls are so cute!

The Anderson Family said...

I promise the next pictures won't be so blurry!! The next ones will be fun. Did I actually read that you hope there is snow?!! I didn't think i would actually hear you say that.

the fellers said...

Ashley Woolf said...

Ashley said...

You guys are looking great! Cute pictures too. Too bad they didn't work out how you'd hoped. Still cute though.

Lynn said...

Even if the pics were fussy.......they sure were cute! How fun you all are. LOL! And SO cute!

Mindi said...

Thanks for the note about my blog Mindy...I fixed that link. Cute family pics! My husband has ruined many-a-family-pictures by sticking his tongue out. At first I was upset, but just came to stick my tongue out as well. Roll with the punches eh?!
